Embrace the New Luxury Era in Post-Pandemic China Market via Culture Transformation

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the Chinese consumer landscape, and it’s time for brands to adapt to this new reality. Consumers are now more rational and value-based in their purchasing decisions, with a heightened focus on health and wellness. And as a result, the luxury market in China has undergone a significant shift, with consumers redefining what they consider to be a true luxury.

Here’s the new definition of luxury with a focus on the below 3 KEYS:

1. Health and Sustainability

According to a study from Nielsen, 81 percent of Millennials expect the brands that they buy into to be transparent in their marketing and actively talk about their sustainability impact.

2. Localization of Luxury Brands

A survey by McKinsey & Company proves that fact: 75% of Chinese consumers expressed a preference for products that incorporate Chinese cultural elements.

3. Experiential Luxury

Despite the Chinese market’s enthusiasm for luxury brands, with personal luxury goods sales increasing by 22% annually, experiential luxury goods still dominate, with an annual sales growth of 28%.
